Subject: The Weather and Authorities
"Beautiful Summer day in a more laid back Hartford as far as authorities go" as one reviewer said.
However, that wasn't true if you happened to be in the parking lot when the Hartford police showed up with all thier riot gear for anyone who was in thier way during and after the show.
Prior to the show I did well with swiss cheese, garlic and wheat toast grilled cheese, covering what I lost during a financially difficult summer tour. I consider it good financially when I can get in every show and not simply work to make gas money to the next.
This was an awsome show. Very awsome.
Subject: hard to believe . . .
this show was so solid that it was indescribable en vivo. it was my 5th Q show, and i brought some family who had not been seeing much since '90-'91. i literally had to drag them out as they dreaded the scene, which in the 90s had gotten out of control on the east coast imho.
well, needless to say, our bones were shakin' from ratdog onward. just when you thought the first Q set was not to be outdone, the second set 'escalated,' soaring beyond any modest expectations. stephen->eyes->stephen->help->slip->11->slip->franklin's? are you kidding? this is some serious stuff.
earlier in the day i had thanked barraco (as he was doing a radio interview out in the food court) for some cool-stealthy-killer tricksters shows that got me through the late-90s out west. his smile radiated promise. it was kept, and how.
these '00-'03 Q shows are the PEAK experience.

Myself, I was blown away by this performance and the tightness of the show. We had seen the previous night in Mansfield and walked away with the thought that Ratdog had been a tad better in the performance although phil brought the jam. This night was a complete difference, I was dancing soooooooo hard that several times I was asked to give up what ever I had...my only reply was I was clean and sober, which I was. The first set was well played and the KSM>DTR finisher was already worth the entire trip down from northern maine/hotel fare/tickets...ect.
The jam that kicks off the 2nd set was truly an exploration of sound and quite tight...a blissful experience that didn't grow old...Dr. Fantasy was an appropiate choice with solid playing and great singing by Barroco, a tinge of sorrow that they didn't go all hey jude on us at the end of the song but that sorrow was completely wiped out by St. Stephen, tight and abosolutely rocking, perfect...especially with the melt into eyes...I couldn't stop dancing and my wife told me that she thought I came close to flying at points....I was just absolutely in heaven. The rest of the set was equally thumping and although I thought that they would have closed the show with Casey Jones due to the train plowing by during set break, Built to last was a perfect encore. I don't think I spoke more than five words on the trip back to northampton...freaking unbelievable.
Now, upon furter review, the taping of this show is very good, not a soundboard but high quality. I am impressed and it is now a staple in my rotation. I was worried that listening to it would dullen my senses about the show but it did not...nothing but awesome bliss listening to this. While a good recording, I give it 4 1/2 stars as it is not pristine. so I err to 4. Thanks to all you wonderful tapers and thanks to the archive.
1)Bob Weir jams with the band from Truckin till the end of Cassidy
2)According to philzone.coms setlist archive there is suppose to be a Rainy Day Woman tease between Cosmic Charlie and Truckin...
Great stuff, THANK YOU PHIL!!
